Yuvraj Singh, who recently passed the Yo-Yo test, is eyeing an international comeback with India. Former India player, Virender Sehwag has backed Yuvraj to make a return to international cricket.

According to Times of India, Sehwag said: “He’s not in the Indian team, but Yuvraj is still an amazing player. His talent is intact. Even a current India player can lose form. I don’t think we’ll get a player like him again. If his form his good, he’s a match-winner.”

He went on to give Ashish Nehra’s example, stating, “That’s up to the selectors. If he performs in domestic cricket, or passes (yoyo), then why not? If Ashish Nehra can make a comeback at 36, why not Yuvi.”

However, Sehwag who is also director of cricket of KXIP in IPL, stated that Yuvraj s T20 future depends on upcoming IPL edition

He added, “(The IPL) benefited me financially, because when I played for India, it was Rs 2 lakh per game, Test matches Rs 5 lakh a game and then suddenly in the IPL you get Rs 10-crore or Rs 12-crore contract and then you are financially secure and you can work more on fitness and perform for the IPL and India.

“The moment you get dropped from India (the national squad), prices drop which we have seen in a lot of players. Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh – (since) they are not playing for India, they did not get (Rs) 10 or 12 crore,” he added.
